CFP: THE “LOST” LOST GENERATION
SAMLA 2022, November 11-13, 2022 in Jacksonville, Florida
This traditional panel session intends to examine the works of lesser-known authors or obscure works by canonized authors during the era known as the Lost Generation. We welcome submissions exploring multiple genres in American literature during the period after World War I and through the 1930s. Since the theme of SAMLA 94 is “Change,” papers could consider how examining lesser-known Lost Generation authors or obscure works can enhance our perspective of the Lost Generation’s approach to shifts in writing, art, culture, and socio-economic issues. Panelists could also explore how the writers during the lost generation experimented with various forms of writing to shape modernity. Submissions should consist of a 150-200-word abstract, a one-page CV including preferred pronouns, and A/V requirements to Nicole Musselman email@example.com by June 30, 2022.
